RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Andrew Mike 2020-10-09 20:04:51 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1886958 +++

Description of problem: Thunderbird OpenGPG integration fails to function.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Consistently.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a GPG keypair with "gpg --gen-key".
2. Make a new IMAP account with the email address of the GPG key.
3. Open the account settings page for that account by right-clicking on the account in the left pane of the main window and selecting "Settings".
4. Click the "Manage Identities..." button, select the single identity in the list, then select "Edit".
5. Go to the "End-To-End Encryption" tab and select the "Add Key..." button.

Actual results: Button has no effect, and no dialog button pops up.

Expected results: Button opens up the a dialog for importing an OpenPGP keypair.

Additional info: When running thunderbird with the --jsconsole command line option, this error appears:

Comment 12 Tomas Popela 2022-12-15 13:39:05 UTC
The support for OpenGPG in Thunderbird on RHEL 7 can't be enabled as on RHEL 8 (bug 1886958) or RHEL 9 (bug 2133263) due to older OpenSSL available on RHEL 7 (openssl-1.0.2k is presented and 1.1.1e required).

What customers could use (albeit not supported by Red Hat) is the upstream binary from Mozilla (available through https://www.thunderbird.net/thunderbird/all/). This version uses and bundles different stack that is not available in RHEL 7.
